Names of York: Andrew Jackson
More in the ongoing series on the Names of York.
Place: Jackson Elementary School in York (and Jackson Township!)
Who was it named after? President Andrew Jackson.
Fun fact: An awful lot of former presidents have York County places named after them. It makes this series almost TOO easy!

Do you have a suggestion of a place in York County named for a person? If so, post a comment! I’m going to work my way through some likely ones, such as schools and parks, but I need other suggestions too!
